Rwanda is set to open it first smartphone factory, making it the first in Africa to locally manufacture phones that will meet the demand of the African market. The announcement was made by Rwanda’s Minister for Information and Communications Technology, Paula Ingabire.
The phones will be among the first devices to run Andriod Oreo, an OS optimized for apps like YouTubeGo, Facebook Lite and Twitter Lite that are made for the African market. The news comes in a few months after Ashish Thakkar of Mara Corporations announced in 2018 that his company would roll out the first phones for sale this year after setting up factories in Rwanda and South Africa at the Africa Investment Forum.
